About a dream

About a dream

I had  just lost my way in a wooded ,
Dark  village. Trying to explore,  through an 
Open hall where carpenters work, I find 
The hall’s  other side  walled up.  I am told
To take another path which  further on
Is blocked  by a  thatched shed with a table 
On top of which are a  roasted chicken 
And side by a small, skeletal, bizarre
Human figure. Three, four men are asleep 
On the floor. To them I declare without
The least thought :’I am your saviour’. The one
Who looks like the leader in  colorful
Long robes rises, smiles and prepares to speak.

Right then, something wakes me up and  I find
My wife  in deep sleep had  just  put her arm
Over me. The morning  finds my daughter
Ill  and  my plans for the day cancelled.
